    Remove WebVoyage footer tabs (buttons)

    • Product: Voyager
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Multi-Tenant Direct, Dedicated-Direct, Local, TotalCare



    Remove one or more footer "tabs" (sometimes called "buttons" or "links") from WebVoyage OPAC user interface.


    There are two different options for making such a change.  The first is granular and just removes one or more of the tabs.  The second removes the entire row of tabs.

    1. Go to  /m1/voyager/xxxdb/tomcat/vwebv/context/vwebv/ui/[skin]/xsl/userTextConfigs/pageProperties.xml and in the "Footer Tab Display Order" section, comment out the tab or tabs you do not want to display in the WebVoyage footer.

    For example, the following change will limit the display to only the Search and the Help tabs:

       <!-- ## Footer Tab Display Order ## -->
          <tab name="">
          <tab name="page.footer.buttons.mySearches.button">
          <tab name="page.footer.buttons.myList.button">
          <tab name="page.footer.buttons.myAccount.button">
          <tab name="" clickOpensNewWindow="true" />

    1. To stop all of the tabs from displaying (e.g., the entire row) simply make the following change to the header.css file:

    #footerTabs .navbar
    display: none;   
    margin: 0px;
    padding: 0px 0px;
